Served on-tap at The Hopping Pig in a Shaker pint.

A: Dark-brown with ruby edges and minimal head if any.

S: Very sweet caramel with cola-sweetness and some raisin aromas.

T: Very cola like but finishes with more roast but overall sweet.

M; Light for the style and pretty easy to drink with low carbonation and light-medium body.

O: Okay but a little weird with the sweeter cola flavor.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a dark brown to black with a medium white head, some spotty lace.

S: Sweet milk chocolate and carob, some light roasted malt.

T: Chocolate and mocha flavour, not overally done, a balanced effort, quite tasty.

M: Smooth, creamy, medium-bodied, soft carbonation.

O: A solid porter here, looks like a new one from Alesmith. Well made, an enjoyable pint.
